I think of myself as a lake swimmer. My favorite childhood memories are of swimming in rivers, lakes and converted quarries. So I've been looking forward to getting out into the lake water.
The temperature hit 95 degrees on Sunday, and I drove out west to the lake where my mom lives. One day of heat did not make the lake instant bath water, apparently. I got a quick 10 minutes in the water, and then I had to dash off to an event with exchange students. It was good to get a dip in the lake, and I'm looking forward to more outside swimming going forward.
I tried to post this as a mobile post, but something went wrong - forgive any tense problems in this post.
